PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The owner of a Providence cinema says he’ll show the film “The Interview.”

Sony Pictures Entertainment decided to screen its film in a limited number of theaters. Cable Car Cinema & Cafe owner Daniel Kamil (kah-MEEL’) says he hopes to start showing it Friday.

Kamil says he’s surprised, but more relieved, that Sony is releasing it.

Sony’s cancellation of the North Korea satire following terrorist threats from hackers drew widespread criticism, including from President Barack Obama.

Kamil says he doesn’t believe anyone will retaliate against his cinema when he shows the movie. He says he has been inundated with requests for it and he thinks the showings will sell out quickly.
